If a certain quality or feature is in one's blood, he or she has something that is part of their nature and often other members of their family may have the same quality or feature. So they have a special quality or feature in them and we think that it's just in their blood. They are naturally that way. Okay. Let's continue. If something is in one's blood, it alludes to the idea it is in his or her DNA and therefore part of their nature. So it's kind of almost literally in their blood. All right. And we have three examples here. Example number one. It is not surprising he is such a great musician. It runs in his blood. Both his parents are professional musicians. Okay. Or number two. The reason Yao Ming was a great basketball player and so tall is that it ran in his blood. Yeah. If you've ever seen pictures ... I remember a long time ago, I had seen pictures of his parents and they were both very tall too. Even though Yao Ming I think ended up taller than both of them, but it was surprising, because his mother was well over six feet as well. I always remember that and I ... If I remember correctly I think she was actually on the Olympic basketball team for China. So and both of them were basketball players and maybe even coaches. So it really ran in his blood or ran in their blood. All right. Number three here. He has been a fighter since the day he was born. It just runs in his blood. His father was the same way. So this is another way that you just may hear it. Okay. I hope you got it . I hope it was clear. Thank you for your time. Bye-bye.
